Cleveland, OH (March 31, 2022) – Two teenagers were hurt following a car crash in Cleveland on Wednesday morning, March 30. The accident took place on Detroit Avenue at the Flight Cleveland Wine Bar.
A 17-year-old driver was reportedly traveling at a high rate of speed when he attempted to turn north. The vehicle left the roadway before crashing into the bar.
